Rose d’Anjou and kebabs

Jul 02, 14 Rose d’Anjou and kebabs

Rosé always make me think of beachy holidays but you don’t have to jump on a plane to get that holiday feeling.

Rosé d’Anjou might not be as well known as its cousin to the south, Provence, but it’s an excellent and delicious summer time wine. Although it can be off-dry in flavour not all rosé d’Anjou is, as a matter of fact, quite a few of the ones we sampled that evening were dry and fresh.

We met on the rooftop of the Queen of Hoxton for a bbq and rosé wine tasting. As well as  getting to know rosé d’Anjou the organisers decided to throw an element of competition into the evening. Divided into teams we were first given a brief lesson on food and wine matching by the chef of the Queen and then let loose with a myriad of ingredients. My team, The Pink Bandits (don’t ask me how we came up with that name), created a seafood kebab to pair with one of the rosés we had tasted earlier. After much deliberation, our kebab was declared the winner! I have to say I was extremely happy as the prize was a case of rosé d’Anjou each.

I’m currently enjoying my rosé d’Anjou in the summer time sun, on the days when it does come out.
